Author: JT Smith

Guardian Digital, Inc., the open
source security company, has today released the enterprise edition of its
highly successfuly EnGarde Secure Linux server operating system. EnGarde
Secure Professional is a comprehensive software solution that provides all
the tools necessary to build a complete online presence.

The EnGarde Secure Professional integrated software solution offers
unsurpassed levels of security, ease of use, and the most sophisticated
Open Source Web-based management system available. The EnGarde Secure
Workgroup Suite, also today released, accompanies EnGarde Secure
Professional to form a complete intranet and collaboration environment.

Capable of supporting thousands of virtual Web sites, e-mail and DNS
domains, this proven enterprise-ready solution marks EnGarde Secure
Professional as the reliable and robust platform for building a complete
corporate Internet presence.

"The ability to quickly and securely get online without requiring a Linux
administrator or security engineer on staff, combined with the ability to
build a robust intrusion detection device or firewall, marks EnGarde
Secure Professional as a cost-effective enterprise solution for business,"
states Benjamin D. Thomas, Guardian Digital Project Manager.

Building on the versatility and security of the EnGarde Secure Linux
Community version released in March, 2001, EnGarde Secure Professional
offers enterprise features and support that combine to deliver the most
powerful multi-purpose Internet communication platform.

Using the integrated Guardian Digital Secure Network service, first
offered as a free trial for EnGarde Secure Linux Community users, is a
means for providing software distribution and product updates, the ability
to quickly communicate with technical support resources, and download
security and product information alerts. Never before has it been easier
to maintain a high level of security and confidence that an organization's
servers are operating efficiently.

EnGarde Secure Professional offers the following features:

  • Web, e-mail, database and DNS services, pre-configured for
    ISPs, ASPs, and fast-growing enterprises.

    build an online presence quickly and securely.

    certificate and SSH key management functions, and more.
  • Gateway firewall including Network Address Translation (NAT) and
    port forwarding to keep out cybervandals.
  • Secure by default ensures that only authorized users are permitted
    access to your corporate assets.
  • Integrated network and host intrusion detection provides
    inherent protection from Trojan horses and protection from
    unauthorized system access.
